American, b. 1953. Best known for “The Ballad of Sexual Dependency”, a cinematic slideshow of 700 photographs set to music, Nan Goldin captured some deeply personal and candid moments of her life in New York. The American photographer is prized for working closely with the LGBTQ community and those from the heroin-addicted subculture as subjects. She captured herself and her friends at their most vulnerable movements, and the truthfulness of these images exuded a certain empathy. Goldin described her style, unlike documentary photography, as a way of touching someone.
